As children of the electronic age, us teens have been using the internet from a very young age. Other popular online games included: Rune Scape, Maplestory, Club Penguin, and many others.
But, something changed when I began middle school: online 3D chat rooms were new and cool things to use.
Ever since then, I’ve been an avid user of the virtual worlds on this list, some more than others.
Keep in mind that not all people in a virtual world are who they say they are, so never reveal any of your personal information to the public.
With that, let’s get to the list (in no particular order)… Vside Vside was in its hay day from about 2008-2009, but there are still many people who continue to use this virtual world.
Originally created by Tyra Banks as a place for teens to “hang out,” there’s plenty of clothing to buy, radio stations to listen to, quests or mysteries to discover, and three different cities to explore.
This is a 3D game in which you control your character with the arrow keys on your keyboard.
I’d probably say that this is my favorite on the list because there are lots to do, even if you’re not “meeting up” with someone, and it runs exceedingly well on newer computers.
I would definitely say to give this one a try because of the many mysteries hidden inside various cities. Zwinky Zwinky was very popular around the same time that Vside was.I haven’t used it in several months, but last time I checked in, there were still loads of people using this virtual world.I would say that this is definitely more of a chat-only website.There isn’t much to do besides shop and talk to other people, but if you’re into that, you would love this.The characters are pretty basic and the only way to stand out is to buy wacky outfits.You can control your character by clicking anywhere, and your character will move to that spot.
